About this course

This practical course will introduce you to the art of arranging flowers for Christmas. It’s a great starting point if you’re a beginner – or are looking to gain some flower arranging confidence, and develop your skills.

You’ll need to bring your own scissors or secateurs, flowers, greenery and mechanics (that’s flower foam, containers and so on - some of these will be available to buy from the tutor, by prior arrangement).

By the end of this course you’ll be able to:

- create a variety of flower arrangements in different styles using fresh flowers and foliage
- confidently apply floristry techniques to an appropriate level
- understand the care and conditioning needs of a variety of plant materials
- show a knowledge and understanding of seasonal plant materials
- demonstrate an awareness of flower arranging basic design

There is no homework requirement for the course, but you will need to provide your own flowers for class each week.

This course will be taught by Julie Davies flower workshops. Julie is an award-winning florist and was BFA Florist Tutor of the year 2016.

There is limited parking on site, but there is a public car park nearby and on-street parking.

How will I be taught?

There will be group and individual tuition and feedback.

What do I need to bring with me?

Students should budget £10-15 per session for flowers. Buying flowers from the supermarket and supplementing these with greenery from your garden is a cost effective way of providing the necessary course materials.
